  • Gibson: Musicians And Partners Unite Across The Globe For #HomeMadeMusic


    NASHVILLE, TN (March 24, 2020) At Gibson--the iconic, American-made instrument brand--we’ve been synonymous with shaping, creating, inspiring and contributing to the ‘share of sound’ for 126 years. Although the current crisis is disrupting our everyday lives, it has also reminded us of what is most important. “As world leaders in music, we are stepping in and bringing both legendary and new artists, music brands and industry partners together across the globe to launch ‘Gibson HomeMade’; a worldwide program to unite music lovers everywhere and spread hope through tough times,” says Cesar Gueikian, Chief Merchant Officer of Gibson.

    “The goal of #HomeMadeMusic is to immediately support our musicians and their current projects while they are at home,” says Beth Heidt, Global Head of Entertainment Relations at Gibson. “Artist performances, intimate interviews and conversations from all over the world can be watched and shared from anywhere starting today, via all Gibson and Epiphone digital platforms on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Gibson TV on YouTube. We’re doing our part to bring the music community together to spread hope, inspiration and joy” adds Heidt. The “Gibson HomeMade Sessions” featuring exclusive, full-length performances of original content from Gibson and Epiphone artists, will be available on Gibson TV. Tune in to see appearances, performances and messages of support and love from Gibson, Epiphone and Kramer artists.

    “I first discovered guitar when I was a kid in Stoke on Trent, England. To me, guitar was the most exciting component of rock ‘n’ roll music. Which is the music I was weaned on. My Dad was a big enthusiast. And his brothers, my uncles were very serious rock ‘n’ roll aficionados. And that was my introduction” says Slash. “I find my emotions are best expressed through the guitar.”
     
    “Tune in, sit down and enjoy a heaping course of Gibson Home Made Sounds! …and feel free to join in to add your own flavor of sonic sauce and stay safe" says Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top.

    “When times are tough and uncertain, music provides a comfort and dependability we all need” says Warren Haynes. “Music unites us all, even when we are apart and ‘socially distanced.’”
     
    “No matter where you are in the world music is our universal language. Creating and listening to music keeps us connected and we need it now more than ever,” says Lzzy Hale of Halestorm. “Stay Home, stay safe and we will all get through this together.”

    “In unexpected times like these, we all need to step back and focus on what is truly important in life and strip away from our day to day worries and see the bigger picture,” adds Jared James Nichols. “Spending time with loved ones and playing my guitar are the biggest joys in my life. I’m taking this time to enjoy just that! Nothing but love to my Gibson family for their dedication to unite us all with the gift of music!”

    Together with our artists and industry partners, Gibson is working to shine a light on the important work of MusiCares (The Recording Academy). Gibson TV will be heavily supporting the new MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. The MusiCares fund offers financial assistance to musicians, production crews and music industry affiliated workers and creators. For more information and to donate to the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, visit: Here.

    Playing and learning guitar has been proven to positively benefit the mind and the body with effects that endure even after the playing has ended. A neuroscientific study from McGill University in Montreal discovered that playing guitar and listening to the music you are creating alters brain chemistry triggering the release of dopamine--the feel-good chemical. Reducing stress and anxiety, mastering a new skill, increased focus and confidence, and even raising your base IQ level (University of Zurich study) are just a handful of the many benefits that can result from learning to play music.

    Gibson is working in solidarity with our network of retailers and distributors around the world to donate, promote and support all musicians as now is the time for everyone to stay healthy at home.

      När jag gör inspelningar ute på "fältet", så måste även jag improvisera då den utrustning jag önskar inte alltid finns på plats.
      Det finns lika många sätt att placera mikrofoner som det finns människor som placerar dem, så bara för att jag skriver dessa olika tips behöver det inte betyda att det är det enda sättet att göra det på, det betyder bara att jag har testat en massa olika mikrofoner och deras placeringar, och jag gillar det jag hör när jag utför följande tips.
      Jag vill berätta om hur du kan spela in akustisk gitarr med flera mikrofoner, där var och en av dessa mikrofoner och dess placering ger ett utmärkt ljud att använda ensamma, men så klart blir det ett maffigare ljud ju fler mikrofoner du använder, men risken för fasfel ökar ju exponentiellt ju fler mikrofoner du använder. (Se längst ner på sidan gällande artiklar om fas och fasfel).
      Fem mikrofoner
      Jag använder mig i detta tips av fem mikrofoner: två kondensatormikrofoner med små membran typ Neumann KM84. En stormembransmikrofon, typ Neumann U67 och slutligen två bandmikrofoner typ två Royer eller två KM84:or.
       
      Neumann KM 84 och Neumann U 67
       
      Royer R-121 MK II
      Vi börjar med att placera personen och hens gitarr i ett rum som helst är 6-7 kvadratmeter stort, och som är ganska dämpat. Om ett helt perfekt rum inte finns att tillgå, vilket det ju väldigt sällan gör, så får vi skapa det. Om du har ett för stort rum så försök att avgränsa det genom att sätta gitarristen mot ett hörn, eller om möjligt, ställ lite högre stolar med filtar hängande över sig runt omkring där hen sitter. Huvudsaken är att du försöker dämpa upp runtomkring så att du inte får en massa reflektioner som studsar i rummet.
      Placera mikrofonerna på följande sätt:
      Välj en kondensatormikrofon (småmembran) och sätt den vid 12:e bandet på gitarrens hals. Rikta den rakt mot halsen med ett avstånd på runt 15-20 cm.  Placera sedan en kondensatormikrofon (stormembran) precis bredvid den första mikrofonen. Rikta den på samma sätt, och var väldigt noggrann med att de har exakt samma avstånd till halsen.  Sätt den andra kondensatormikrofonen (stormembran) på samma avstånd, men placera den riktad i 45 graders vinkel mot stallet på gitarren. Mät avståndet så att du får dessa identiska mellan alla mikrofoner.  Sätt mikrofon 4-5, det vill säga, två kondensatormikrofoner med små membran typ Neumann KM84 eller två bandmikrofoner typ Royer ovanför gitarristen, i X/Y-placering cirka 20-30 cm ovanför huvudet. Därefter är det dags att lyssna. Sätt ett Low cut-filter på alla mikrofoner utom på stormembrans-kondensator-mikrofonen som ska få stå för kropp och värme. Du kan gott skära upp till 300-400 Hz på de två småmembrans-mikrofonerna, som sitter mot hals och stall, och beroende på hur mycket du vill känna av rummet så ska du nog ta minst lika mycket på X/Y-paret ovanför också, kanske mer – Det beror på vilken akustik du har i rummet, och du får skruva på EQ:n tills du tycker att det känns bra. Tänk bara på att om du spelar in med en EQ, så är det väldigt mycket lättare att skära bort till exempel bas, än att skapa det efteråt om det redan är bortskuret.
      Tänk också på att få en bra signalnivå, så att det inte blir för mycket brus eller dylikt som gör att det låter sämre än det behöver.
      Det är viktigt att gitarristen sitter stilla, och i samma position hela tiden när hen spelar, annars finns det risk för att ljudet ”åker i stereobilden” eftersom det är parallella stereouppmickningar. Tejpa lite på golvet så att gitarristen kan sätta fötterna på märkena så vet du att hen sitter rätt varje gång. Det är bra om gitarrens volymstyrka är jämn genom hela låten.
      Inspelning på fem separata kanaler
      Nu kan du spela in på fem separata kanaler, och när ljudet kommer tillbaka så ska du panorera stormembrans-mikrofonen i mitten. De två småmembrans-mikrofonerna ska vara fullt panorerade till vänster respektive höger, och slutligen de två mikrofonerna som är placerade ovanför, ska du också panorera fullt ut vänster och höger.
      Det fina med denna uppställning är att du har en massa möjligheter. Det är ju så klart en onödigt stor uppställning, om du nu bara ska spela in lite ”ringa-racka”, men om gitarren ska vara bärande så ger detta dig möjligheter att göra den hur stor eller liten du vill. Du kan hålla mitt-micken lite varmare och de två sidomikrofonerna lite mer diskantrika och på så sätt få en riktigt bred stereobild. Vill du ha den varmare och smalare så sänker du sidomikrofonerna så klart.
      Färga med överhängsmikrofonerna
      De två överhängsmikrofonerna låter du "färga in rummet", och ett bra sätt att utnyttja dem är att lägga effekter på dessa mickar. Exempelvis om du vill ha lite reverb, delay eller annat – på så sätt känns gitarren varm och nära men har ändå en fin efterklang ifrån något reverb eller delay.
      Om sånginspelning, mikrofonplacering för gitarr och piano samt om fasfel
      Tidigare har jag gjort ett tips på hur du kan jobba när du ska spela in sång som du kan läsa här: Att tänka på vid sånginspelning, samt ett mer allmänt tips på hur du kan tänka generellt vid mikrofonplacering – bland annat när du ska spela in en akustisk gitarr med en mikrofon, vid 12:e bandet om du vill ha det lite mer diskantrikt, och vid stallet om du är ute efter ett varmare och något basigare ljud, och även tips gällande piano som du kan läsa här: Betydelsen av rätt mikrofonplacering.
      Gällande ämnet fas och fasfel, så rekommenderar Studio Jon Rinnebys artikel Fasen. Vad bra den låter, samt blogginlägget Fasfel och hur du undviker det av Studio-medlemmen "Trombonisten".

      NEW YORK—June 16th, 2020—In a deal that aligns several New York-based brands, D’Angelico Guitars has acquired Supro USA and Pigtronix.

      With a shared heritage as reignited legacy brands, D’Angelico Guitars and Supro have collaborated as a guitar and amp pairing in their marketing efforts for years. “We have always had a deep appreciation for Supro’s products and brand,” says D’Angelico Chairman John Ferolito Jr. “When the opportunity to acquire the brand arose, we didn’t think twice.”
      “This is going to make all three brands even stronger,” says CEO Brenden Cohen. “I can’t wait for our customers to see what we have in store for them.”
      Along with Supro, D’Angelico Guitars has also acquired Pigtronix. Both Supro and Pigtronix were previously owned by Absara Audio, located in Long Island, NY. “All three companies having a home base in New York just amplifies the harmony these brands already share,” says D’Angelico COO Jimmy Lovinggood. “The last few months have been an extremely challenging time for businesses across the country and around the world—New York City especially. We began this acquisition many months before COVID-19, and although this is a challenging time for every industry, we truly believe in these brands and decided to move forward in full confidence.”
      Supro was originally founded in Chicago in the 1930s, producing amplifiers that were featured on some of the greatest rock records of all time. It was relaunched in 2013 and has gone on to achieve popular status in the music industry. Pigtronix is a fast-growing industry leader amongst boutique pedal companies, featuring forward-thinking design and concepts.
      “The acquisition of Supro and Pigtronix by D’Angelico creates a trifecta,” says Dave Koltai, former co-owner of Supro and Pigtronix. “It’s a perfect fit, and I am thrilled to be able to continue making new gear for musicians around the world.” Koltai will be onboard as Chief Technology Officer, continuing to design and develop both Supro Amps and Pigtronix Pedals, alongside D’Angelico’s Executive Vice President of Product Development, Ryan Kershaw. “This is going to allow us to take everything we do to the next level,” says Kershaw.
      Though the acquisition is now complete, the brands will enter a transitional phase, developing a new company structure and revised product plan for 2021. “We could not be more excited for what’s to come,” says Cohen. “This is the company I have been envisioning.”

      Since 1946, Fender helped build the guitar community by empowering individuals to play and create music. This includes supporting artists through initiatives like the Uncancelled Music Festival and the MusiCares® COVID-19 Relief Fund to support musicians and touring personnel in need.  Whether it be dusting off an old guitar, learning a new skill or entertaining tiny hands, the brand hopes opening Fender Play up to 1 million users inspires and encourages even more people to harness the power of playing as the world continues to navigate a new normal.
